The block is about 195 ft. across N-S, not including the existing sidewalks. I estimated the building at about 170 ft. wide at the base there, as it looks like they widened the one side walk along 34th street in the render.

The New Yorker Hotel behind it is 470 ft. tall, but its also about 1,600 ft. further away from the camera in the night render.

Also, the night rendering is a bit inaccurate as far as building placement. It should block out most of the New Yorker Hotel from that perspective (unless the map here is wrong) as that hotel is also in between 34th and 35th streets.

great proposal, can't wait to see it rising

but, why is that thread in the Supertall-section, have we any evidence that it'll be over 300m?

If my calculation turns out to be about right (~1,000ft.), that will put it at 304 meters.

Not me. The gap between Midtown and Downtown is filled with mile after mile of magnificent, old buildings. If those are ever destroyed, NY will look like Chicago, Houston or Tokyo.

I really like the new, tree-lined avenue, Hudson Blvd., that the city is building between 10th and 11th Ave. This area will be transformed from a den of junk yards and mechanics shops to a stunning, green area.

Don't get me wrong. Nice looking (by design, not condition) historic buildings in good (or at least rehabilitable) shape should definately be preserved. I'm just saying that really useless decrepit buildings should be replaced. I'm sure that part of Manhattan has a good number of buildings that qualify. More green spaces (small parks) would also benefit that part of town.

I was pissed when they tore down some very historic buildings here where I live. The original Ricks College Spori building, and the old hospital annex building. Both were some of the oldest buildings in town.

I agree with your comments, but there are very few decripit buildings in the gap. That area has some of the best architecture in the whole city.

Hardly, if it's quoted at 304 metres at a rough estimate, it'll still be shorter than the ESB. The ESB will still be a good 77 metres taller.
Still, good project for NYC.

definitely would be a nice addition to the skyline, but it dominates the ESB a little too much. could just be the rendering though...

simple, but modern. i like it. its good to see new york getting a little skyscraper face lift.

When I estimated the night render, I got 1,200-1,300 ft., so it was a bit exaggerated (not to mention in the wrong spot).

pretty exciting, and I have a feeling that this isn't even going to be the hallmark of the west side once the transformation is complete

I don't think it will dominate ESB, obviously from that perspective the viewer is much nearer that building than ESB, therefore the appearance.

Where did you come up with that figure? Sixty-six story buildings normally don't approach 1,000ft without the aid of a spire. And I don't see a spire.
